Spinoni enjoy play time and relaxation.  
Growing up we always had a variety of animals.  
In the early 90's I decided it was time to have a 4 legged companion.  My older daughter
worked at a boarding kennel at the time and brought me home a girl of unknown
background, Elvira.  Then my boss decided Elvira needed a friend and my daughter
needed a dog to show, so Kallie the golden retriever entered.  Kallie loved training
classes but hated to show.  When Elvira died suddenly Kallie needed a friend so I got my

My adventures in the world of pure bred show dogs began in full.  I had a great mentor in
labs and learned so much.  Meanwhile my daughter showed the dogs and enjoyed the
In 1999 I decided I would like a different breed, one I can show myself.  I started looking
and found the spinoni.  I had seen a spinone on one of my trips to Italy but was so busy
at the time with work, I gave no thought to the breed.  After many phone calls I spoke
with a breeder who had many of the same ideas that I had.  So in July 2000 my spinone
adventures began.  I flew to Kentucky and met Pat Fendley, Mals About Spinone.  With
her guidance I was able to pick my first spinone, Mals-About Echowin Gavi.  Gavi has
opened many doors for me and has helped me make many new friends from all over the
US.  Pat has become a great friend and mentor.

We welcome calls regarding the breed and always will answer your
questions.  Visits are encouraged when planned.  
We are located on the western slope of Colorado.
